Refereum Introduction with Dylan

00:00 Entertainment is intrinsic to the human experience.
00:10 Games connect us in a way that no other medium can, allowing us to experience what the world's greatest creative minds can offer.
00:18 But such creativity is stifled by a growing reliance on marketing platform companies.
00:22 These centralized companies under pay individuals and overcharge creatives only to offer less and less in return.
00:29 But what if we could redistribute the same marketing budgets away from corporations and towards people?
00:37 What if we can offer game developers cheaper marketing with better traffic and enabled gamers and influencers to make money playing video games?
00:48 What if we could lower the barriers of entry for eSports and gaming as a career?
00:53 Well, with the blockchain and Refereum, now we can.
00:58 Refereum cuts out the marketing middleman by directly connecting game developers and game influencers together.
01:11 Game developers buy the Refereum token, stock their games with it, they get to choose any way they want to reward it and streamers can generate a unique URL shirt out to their fans and if fans buy it, everybody makes money.
01:25 I've worked on some of the top grossing Facebook and mobile games and we were paying $15 for a single player install and that player didn't even play the game.
01:35 But with Refereum, now developers only have to pay for traffic if they beat the tutorial or the final boss or whatever they come up with.
01:42 That kind of control allows game developers to keep spending because they know that they have money coming in.
01:50 In addition that keeps their money in the games ecosystem and allows any size developer to offer eSports rewards.
01:57 To do this right, we're advised by some of the top gaming platforms in the industry, like twitch and unity, who have set some pretty encouraging things about us.
02:09 My name is Dylan Jones, I'm the founder of Refereum and our team has been working hard out of this game co-working space I also started three years ago.
02:27 Collectively, this team has done everything from indie hits, mobile top, grossing triple-a, we've even optimized analytics and giant game platforms.
02:35 The teams worked everywhere from Zynga to Google.
02:40 And our team take security very seriously, that's why we've partnered with NBC to make sure our smart contracts are secure.
02:49 In fact, they're even written by the same white hat hacker who saved and returned the millions of dollars worth of Ethereum earlier in the year in the multi-sig exploit.
02:59 Our ERC 20 utility tokens are secured and used in games today and continue to expand.
03:03 Check out our testimonials and press.
03:07 This is just a start of Refereum.
03:12 Dig into our white paper, check out our open source code that we've already published, inspect our roadmap and most of all, let us know what you think.
03:20 Ultimately, it's about reclaiming the game industry, taking it back from corporations, decentralizing it, making sure that developers can get their games out there and allowing gamers to make a living doing what they love.
03:33 As for Refereum goal, we hope you join us.

ICO Review: Refereum (RFR) - Decentralized Gaming Referral Marketplace

00:00 Hi there this, is Victoria from CrushCrypto.com.
00:00 In this video, I will be covering Refereum, a decentralized gaming referral marketplace.
00:07 Please know we are not paid or mandated to do any of our reviews, this is just a personal opinion and analysis and not investment advice.
00:15 So the problem Refereum trying to solve, the video game industry is a hundred and eight billion dollar industry, however, recent years have been showing that game budgets are shifting away from development and more towards marketing.
00:28 In addition, top game distribution platforms enforce up to thirty percent cuts of all products sales, taking away value from game companies and impeding developers.
00:36 And to accompany this, top game streamers and content creators are growing huge followings on the internet, yet they have limited opportunities to monetize their followings.
00:46 Refereum is a platform that aims to reduce the costs of selling and marketing games by directly reporting individuals for sharing games and embracing influencer sites.
00:55 In hopes to replace the currently inefficient process for video game marketing and expensive traditional payment methods.
01:02 The goal of referring is to build a three sided network or developers benefit from lower costs and less hassle, influencers receive effective avenues to profit and gamers can earn money from sharing and playing video games.
01:15 This diagram shows how Refereum works in a nutshell.
01:20 By cutting out the marketing middleman, Refereum directly rewards influencers and gamers for promoting and playing video games, something otherwise unattainable for most influencers in today's market.
01:30 The project has developed an open-source game that demonstrates Refereum best practices on the test net they have also completed a site where streamers and gamers on Twitch or discord are incentivized to play games for rewards including RFR tokens.
01:43 The road map which is listed on the slide, is not that specific, but does highlight their goals out to 2020.
01:49 For 2018, the team's focus will be on scalability.
01:53 They will be adding new features to Refereum that allow for the accommodation of more users as the network grows.
01:59 In 2019, they hope to provide developers with deeper integrations and rewards on the platform.
02:04 Through 2020, their goal will be to adapt to the needs of the community and to investigate additional verticals.
02:11 Refereum will be raising funds by issuing RFR tokens.
02:16 The hard cap is 25 million dollars at 1 cent per token.
02:19 This implies a maximum market cap of 50 million dollars on the ico date on a fully diluted basis.
02:25 The pre-sales ongoing but you will need to contact the team directly if you want to participate.
02:30 The minimum contribution for the pre-sell is twenty thousand dollars.
02:34 The original date of the main token sale was December 12, 2017, but the team has changed it to February 8, 2018.
02:41 Although the whitelist has closed, there is still a weightless open for registration.
02:46 This chart shows how the total supply of five billion RFR tokens will be distributed, and this chart shows the intended use of proceeds raised from the ICO.
02:55 For the most up-to-date information on the ICO, please visit Refereum website or join their discord and telegram groups.
03:02 The RFR token is designed to enable decentralized referral marketing and cash rewards in a global marketplace.
03:08 Any user who shares referral links for specific games or friends and followers can earn these tokens, which can be traded for cash or used to buy new content.
03:18 RFR tokens will have three main use cases on the Refereum network.
03:21 First, anyone can buy games using these tokens and verify these purchases on the blockchain.
03:28 This provides incentive for users to refer their friends and followers and earn RFR tokens so that they can earn you games over time.
03:34 However, games can still be purchased with fiat currency.
03:38 Second, game developers can pay in these tokens to feature their game on the marketplace and get more traffic.
03:44 They can also share profits in the form of RFR tokens with influencers who help sell their game.
03:50 For example instead of using 30 percent of a game budget to pay traditional distribution platforms, they can choose to allocate 10% to go directly to streamers who help distribute the game via referrals.
04:00 Third, sellers of digital goods can pay to list their products for distribution by paying with RFR tokens.
04:06 The more people that use Refereum network, the more demand there should be for these tokens over time, especially for influencers and game developers who are making a living in this industry.
04:17 The team behind Refereum has experience in the gaming industry as well as in digital advertising.
04:22 The biographies for the key team members are summarized on the slide.
04:26 Their advisors include a manager of the unity asset store ecosystem, an early member of the Google Play games business development team and the founder of an be safe, a smart contract development company.
04:39 Here are some of the opportunities we wanted to highlight.
04:42 First of all we believe the idea of compensating gamers is a good way to build up a community and to create traction.
04:49 Refereum uses this strategy to promote their own ICO and it is proven to be successful in driving market awareness.
04:55 Second, influencers are becoming increasingly important in the gaming industry today.
05:00 According to one survey, recommendations from friends and relatives and good reviews are key drivers in getting consumers to start playing a new mobile game.
05:08 Twitch, which is a thirty seventh most visited site globally according to Alexa, is basically built entirely from video game influencers.
05:16 With Refereum, influencers should be able to bring in a lot more earnings.
05:20 The demo which you can check out on their website is showing a lot of good potential with the referral model and ways that gamers can be compensated.
05:26 The RFR token also makes sense to us and compliments Refereum's business model.
05:31 We did have a few concerns.
05:33 First of all, the development roadmap is vague to us.
05:38 Without a detailed road map, we cannot assess how well thought-out the team strategy is or when we should expect to see meaningful progress.
05:43 The team also has not disclosed a range of bonus provided to pre-sell participants.
05:49 According to a recent blog post, they said they won't be releasing this number yet until later.
05:54 This makes it hard for others to know the cost basis of pre-cell participants.
05:57 If the pre-sale bonus is significant, it could create selling pressure for the token once it has listed.
06:03 Overall, from an investment perspective, we have a positive view on flipping.
06:07 The project has a promising demo and the team, idea and market awareness is above average compared to other ICO projects.
06:13 Despite the current crypto market environment, we believe the project can still sell out with unmet demand.
06:20 As for long-term holding, we are also positive.
06:22 We like the idea of Refereum and believe it can gain traction pretty quickly because of its referral model and compensation to gamers.
06:30 If the project is successful, the potential can be substantial because it would disrupt how the gaming industry compensates different parties and the marketing strategy employed by game development companies.
06:40 Thank you very much for taking the time to watch our video on Refereum.
